not been all smooth sailing. starbucks got a roasting for paying no corporation tax on new sales of some $600 million. it's now volunteered to make some payments. starbucks arrangements are perfectly legal and typical of a multinational of its kind. but critics have not been silent, forcing starbucks into damage control. >> one of the things that's really tricky about that situation on corporation tax is how do you educate the public of the complexities of the british tax code, and does the public really care about those intricacies? probably not. so, on the one hand, by educating the public, you look defensive. by not educating them, then you're almost encouraging them to think that you are a big, greedy, terrible company trying to exploit your workers. it's a very difficult thing to play. >> big numbers expected later on from starbucks. >> aaron, thank you, thank you. do stay with us. there's much more to come here on "g.m.t." our science correspondent explains why biscuits provide a clue to the link between dogs and their canine ancestors. >> now, to the controversial construction of

his speech as a kind of a call to action. from climate change to the tax code, he promised reforms. >> our interests compel us to act on those who long for freedom. >> every word was meant to reinforce a progressive agenda. >> our agenda is not clear unless everybody is treated equally under the law. >> the theme of racial and sexual equality was front and center, i think a lot of the second term will be devoted to a lot of other things. >> the president takes one last look noting he will not ever see this again. he will not be the focus of another 9000-person parade. he could barely stop himself from dancing until he got the chance to, for he begins what is expected to be a fierce fight with congress if he hopes to make any additions to his legacy. companybia's state oil is planning rebels for an explosion of a pipeline. it cost a small spill -- it caused a small sill. pill. a truce was declared. at least 60,000 people have been killed in the past six years. many police officers have also died in the line of duty. are leaving the force because they say it is no longer worth the ri

the brunt of the troubles. people see rising prices of basic staple goods, tax hikes on subsidies. this is what many criticize and why many are protesting today, what they say is the brotherhoodization of the state. they're saying the brotherhood [indiscernible] for its own political gain. there is a sense instead of trying to reform the state, the muslim brotherhood are instead try to take it over. so that we switch from mubarak to morsi. that is what the main calls are for in this protest today. many are also calling for accountability and justice, retribution for the many hundreds of protesters that have been killed, the many thousands more that have been wounded. today only to low ranking policemen are in prison for killing hundreds of protesters. people see there is no accountability. the police continue to act toward impunity. we're seeing clashes break out right now in the outskirts of tahrir, alexandria, wondering if this is going to escalate or not. protest crux of today's is the direction not only at the brotherhood, but at the remnants of the state, the state bureaucrac
-third of the low-income workers. they have been given 18 tax breaks by mr. obama, as he keeps telling us, so they've got theirs. big businesses are mimicking profit, wallowing in bonuses. they can pay the minimum wage. i just read -- wrote a letter to the head of walmart is that, "look, you grows over $300 billion in u.s.. this will cost you less than $2 billion to take a million or so of your workers up to $10.50. he would get less turnover and more productivity and will sleep better at night." >> how does wal-mart's wages here compared to wages elsewhere, worldwide? >> in western europe, for example, walmart has stores, employees. they have to give them a paid vacation. they're often -- they all have health care because it is universal, government health care. they have to give them paid sick leave, including family sick leave. they have better benefits because they are required to do it. so why is walmart treating european workers, and in some respect canadian workers -- in ontario, the minimum wage is $10.25, not $7.25 here in the u.s. why is walmart to the workers in foreign countries so bet
